2016 $20 The Polar Bear Geometry In Art Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt) 148062

Lines, shapes, patterns and dimension: these fundamental concepts are at the heart of geometry, art and design, forming an indisputable common bond between mathematical and artistic realms. As digital artists seek to recreate the physical world through dimensional images, modelling techniques based on geometric shapes spawned an innovative new visual style: low poly art. This eye-catching five-coin series utilizes this art style to present a contemporary and highly artistic interpretation of Canada's most famous icons, continuing with the polar bear.

- A fresh, modern take on Canada's timeless icons: The second coin in the inventive new five coin Geometry in Art series, which reinterprets familiar Canadian emblems-the polar bear, the beaver, the caribou, the loon and the maple leaf-in a low poly art style.
- Breathtaking use of colour: In keeping with the low poly art style, lustrous colours contribute to the perception of depth and shadows; the varying shades of blue and white also help convey the icy feel of the Arctic setting, providing yet another dynamic visual element to the design.
- Crafted in 99.99% pure silver with a low mintage set to only 7,500 worldwide.
- An unforgettable addition to any collection-especially those with a wildlife, nature or Canadiana theme, or any that include the beloved symbols that have come to represent this land and its people.
- A conversation-starter for anyone with an interest in the art style that has evolved from dimensional modelling techniques, particularly those used in Canada's thriving video game development industry.
